Resident Evil fans who were looking forward to the RE Showcase event Capcom held got bombshell announcements for Resident Evil Village, as the game got a new trailer, gameplay footage, and was confirmed for a May 7, 2021 release for all platforms — including the PS4 and Xbox One.
Thanks to DualShockers, we now have details and a look at the upcoming Collector’s Edition and Deluxe Edition releases of RE: Village, which feature some very compelling items for big time RE fans.
Those that pre-order the game outright will receive a Mr. Raccoon weapon charm and a starter survival resource pack that will help players early on in the game. The Digital Deluxe Edition “Trauma Pack” includes a Mr. Everywhere charm, Save Device, Save Room Music, the Save Device, the Max Difficulty level, an Albert01 silencer gun, Found Footage RE7 filter, and finally a digital artbook called “The Tragedy of Ethan Winters”.
Much like Resident Evil 2 Remake and Resident Evil 3 Remake before it, the Collector’s Edition of RE Village contains some items that the diehard RE collector will definitely want — including a poster of the map to the titular village the game takes place in, the aforementioned Trauma Pack product code, a steelbook cover, a sample artbook, and the key item itself being a statue of longtime RE protagonist Chris Redfield. All of these come packed inside a chest that represents the storage boxes used throughout the series history, so it’s definitely the ultimate package for the ultimate RE fan.
